«Discontinued apprenticeships: costs, trends and opportunities»
National conference in Bern on 9 September 2016
Apprenticeship contract termination presents a major challenge for VET systems. The young people concerned need to be able to rapidly resume upper-secondary level training if they are to avoid dropping out of a VET programme completely. Apprenticeship contract termination often is a major psychological burden for the affected young people and has a decisively negative impact on their future career and income prospects. Furthermore, significant costs for society arise when young people do not manage to resume training.
